Back Exercises with Barbell
You can’t see your back without a lot of effort, but this doesn't mean you shouldn’t train it. Back exercises consisting of both back stretching and back strengthening is very important to your health and overcoming back pain.
Below you'll find helpful exercises for your upper back muscles.
A barbell is a piece of exercise equipment used in weight training, weightlifting and powerlifting. Barbells range in length from 4 feet (1.2 m) to 8 feet (2.4 m) and vary in diameter.
Disc weights (plates) are slid onto the outer portions of the bar to obtain the desired total weight. These weights are often secured with collars to prevent them from sliding off during the exercise.
The barbell can vary in weight from 15lbs. to 45lbs. and has sleeves on both ends that rotate. This enables the weight plates to spin on their own axis, which eliminates the rotational-inertia effect placed on the lifter during explosive lifts like the clean and jerk and snatch.
The barbell bent over row is an intermediate back exercise. This is an excellent compound exercise that builds strength in the mid and lower back.
